Religion of Psychopaths

A mohamed teddy bear update. In Khartoum, Sudan, thousands of mentally deranged, bloodthirsty death cultists, armed with clubs and knives, demanded the execution of Gillian Gibbons, the teacher who allowed her 7 year old pupils to name a teddy bear mohamed.

Only adherents of the savage, primitive "culture", of islam explode into a mass frenzy of hatred and violent rage over the slightest offenses, whether it be cartoons or teddy bears. While watching these medieval-minded barbaric beasts on the streets of Khartoum, brandishing knives raised in the air, wearing white robes and whatever you call what they wore on their heads, which weren't exactly turbans, its hard to believe this kind of madness is occuring in the 21st century. These crazies in Khartoum and their like-minded brethren are nothing but human refuse cluttering the Earth. Clearly islam induces psychopathic behavior on a massive scale. Islam is a blight on the world, the most dangerous, poisonous threat the world has ever faced and needs to be ruthlessly crushed before it leads us to armageddon.

And yet in the midst of all of this madness, British authorities continue to grovel and walk on eggshells to make sure they don't cause the slightest offense, expressing how they respect islam. What is there to respect? What will it take for western leaders to acquire a backbone?

KHARTOUM, Sudan - Thousands of Sudanese, many armed with clubs and knives, rallied Friday in a central square and demanded the execution of a British teacher convicted of insulting Islam for allowing her students to name a teddy bear "Muhammad."

In response to the demonstration, teacher Gillian Gibbons was moved from the women's prison near Khartoum to a secret location for her safety, her lawyer said.

The protesters streamed out of mosques after Friday sermons, as pickup trucks with loudspeakers blared messages against Gibbons, who was sentenced Thursday to 15 days in prison and deportation. She avoided the more serious punishment of 40 lashes.

They massed in central Martyrs Square outside the presidential palace, where hundreds of riot police were deployed. They did not try to stop the rally, which lasted about an hour.

"Shame, shame on the U.K.," protesters chanted.

They called for Gibbons' execution, saying, "No tolerance: Execution," and "Kill her, kill her by firing squad."

Gibbons' chief lawyer, Kamal al-Gizouli, said she was moved from the prison for her safety for the final nine days of her sentence.

"They moved this lady from the prison department to put her in other hands and in other places to cover her and wait until she completes her imprisonment period," he said, adding that she was in good health.

"They want, by hook or by crook, to complete these nine days without any difficulties, which would have an impact on their foreign relationship," he said.

Several hundred protesters, not openly carrying weapons, marched from the square to Unity High School, about a mile away, where Gibbons worked. They chanted slogans outside the school, which is closed and under heavy security, then headed toward the nearby British Embassy. They were stopped by security forces two blocks away from the embassy.

The protest arose despite vows by Sudanese security officials the day before, during Gibbons' trial, that threatened demonstrations after Friday prayers would not take place. Some of the protesters carried green banners with the name of the Society for Support of the Prophet Muhammad, a previously unknown group.

Many protesters carried clubs, knives and axes — but not automatic weapons, which some have brandished at past government-condoned demonstrations. That suggested Friday's rally was not organized by the government.

A Muslim cleric at Khartoum's main Martyrs Mosque denounced Gibbons during one sermon, saying she intentionally insulted Islam. He did not call for protests, however.

"Imprisoning this lady does not satisfy the thirst of Muslims in Sudan. But we welcome imprisonment and expulsion," the cleric, Abdul-Jalil Nazeer al-Karouri, a well-known hard-liner, told worshippers.

"This an arrogant woman who came to our country, cashing her salary in dollars, teaching our children hatred of our Prophet Muhammad," he said.

Olmert Agrees to Surrender Temple Mount?

According to Aaron Klein of World Net Daily, Olmert is lying when he says the Temple Mount is not up for negotiation. He writes that a chief palestinian negotiator claims that Olmert has already agreed to surrender the Temple Mount to a coalition of arab countries, including Egypt, Jordan and the PA. I don't know how credible this story is, but its difficult to give Olmert the benefit of the doubt given his track record of betrayal.

JERUSALEM – Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's statements yesterday that Israel's sovereignty over the Temple Mount is not up for negotiation are "false," according to a chief Palestinian negotiator who told WND the Israeli leader already agreed to forfeit Judaism's holiest site to a coalition of Arab countries.

"What Olmert said [regarding the Mount] is absolutely false. I think he's not yet ready to tell the Israeli public and is waiting for the right time and he fears his coalition with religious extremists will fall apart if he announces it now," said a senior Palestinian negotiator, speaking to WND today from Annapolis on condition his name be withheld.

Olmert's maintains a government coalition with the religious Shas party and Russian Yisroel Beiteinu party but if those two bolt, the prime minister could create a new coalition with leftist parties.

The chief Palestinian negotiator said in months leading up to Annapolis the Palestinian team was "surprised" by Olmert's willingness to give up the Mount.

"We had intense debates on many topics, which remain open and unsettled, but the Harem Al-Sharif (Temple Mount) is not a sticking point. The Israelis didn't argue with us. We were pleasantly surprised Olmert didn't debate about giving the lower section of the [Mount] either, which was a sticking point in the past."


According to the negotiator, Olmert agreed to evacuate the Mount but not to turn it over to the Palestinians alone. The negotiator said both sides agreed the Temple Mount would be given to joint Egypt, Jordan and Palestinian Authority control.

He said the Israeli government felt an umbrella group of several Arab countries controlling the holy site instead of only the PA would help ease Israeli domestic opposition to giving up the Temple Mount, since Egypt and Jordan are considered by Israeli policy to be moderate countries.

France's Jewish Lobby

In typical muslim ignorant, paranoid antisemitic fashion, an Algerian government minister said that French president Nicholas Sarkozy was brought to power by a Jewish lobby. He also referred to Sarkozy's family background, his maternal grandfather was Jewish. Why should the west have any relations with muslim countries and why do muslim countries get a free pass on their antisemitism?

France's Foreign Ministry expressed surprise on Wednesday over an Algerian government minister's remarks about a "Jewish lobby" being behind French President Nicolas Sarkozy's rise to power.

The flap came as Sarkozy was preparing to visit Algeria next week.

Muhammad Cherif Abbas, Algeria's minister for veterans, was quoted Monday in the daily El Khabar as saying that Sarkozy had been brought to power by a "Jewish lobby that has a monopoly on French industry."

Abbas also mentioned Sarkozy's "roots," an apparent reference to the French president's maternal grandfather, who was Jewish.

French Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Pascale Andreani responded Wednesday: "We are surprised about these remarks that appeared in the press, which do not correspond to the climate of confidence and cooperation in which we are preparing the president's state visit."

Wiping Israel off the Map

Just a day after the Annapolis farce, Israel's "peace" partners express once again their real intentions. Official PA television showed a map with a "palestinian" state in place of Israel. Why is it that the west and the Israeli government ignore the obvious and pretend peace is remotely possible with these hateful people?

...U.S. President George Bush, at the conference on Tuesday, read aloud the summit's agreed-upon joint statement, which declares, "In furtherance of the goal of two states, Israel and Palestine, living side by side in peace and security, we agree to immediately launch good-faith bilateral negotiations in order to conclude a peace treaty."

However, Itamar Marcus and Barbara Crook of Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) report that just a day later, "Mahmoud Abbas’s Palestinian Authority continues to paint a picture for its people of a world without Israel."


Specifically, PMW reports that an information clip produced a while ago by the PA's Central Bureau of Statistics was rebroadcast on Wednesday on Abbas-controlled PA television. The clip shows a map in which the Land of Israel is painted in the colors of the Palestinian flag, symbolizing the replacement of Israel by a Palestinian state.

The Palestinian entity depicted as replacing Israel includes all of Judea, Samaria and Gaza, though not the Golan Heights.

The depiction of all of Israel as "Palestine" is not coincidental, PMW reports, "and is part of a formal, systematic educational approach throughout the Palestinian Authority. This uniform message of a world without Israel is repeated in school books, children's programs, crossword puzzles, video clips, formal symbols, school and street names, etc. The picture painted for the Palestinian population, both verbally and visually, is of a world without Israel."

PMW concludes: "The fact that this campaign continues before the ink on the Annapolis agreement is even dry appears to contradict the central promise of the Palestinians at the Annapolis conference: that Israel has a right to exist."

Arabs Ignore Livni

The petty and arrogant arab delegates ignored Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni. It should be clear to all, through this infantile behavior, that the arabs have no genuine interest in a negotiated settlement. These people don’t know the meaning of the word “compromise”. They just want Israel’s surrender. When the arabs speak of wanting the U.S. to get involved and have a more hands-on approach in the “peace” process, what they are really saying is they want the U.S. to force Israel to capitulate to all of their demands. The arabs never negotiate in good faith, they can never be trusted. Israel should concede absolutely nothing. Will the Bush administration and the State Department, observing this petulant arab behavior, come to realize the futility of any peace process? I doubt it. As far as the Israeli leadership goes, they ought to acquire some pride and self-respect and stop groveling for the approval of Israel's barbaric, inferior enemies.

The Foreign Ministry on Thursday denied earlier reports in The Washington Post according to which Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni had called on Arab delegates at the Annapolis conference to stop treating her "as a pariah" and asked them why no one would shake her hand or be seen speaking to her.

According to a transcript of the speech provided by the Foreign Ministry, Livni did not in fact say any of the statements attributed to her, but rather said:

"I have heard some say that Israel should not expect a handshake, and I will not ask for one. But let us imagine what might happen if the worst possible scenario occurs and there is a handshake between an Israeli leader and an Arab leader whose country has no diplomatic relations with Israel, and that handshake is broadcast around the world."

"Then the extremists in the Arab countries will understand that a new era is beginning, that the process is right and that it is being implemented in stages," continued the quote provided by the Foreign Ministry.

Religion of Vicious Child Abuse

The "palestinians" and muslim societies in general, indoctrinate and incite their children from an early age to hate and want to kill Jews, Americans and westerners, and to strive to become shahids (martyrs). Take a look at this sick and disturbing video of a little girl brainwashed into spewing vile Jew-hatred. This is the abuse muslims inflict on their own children. Now how can we possibly live in peace and coexistence with a "civilization", if that's what you want to call it, which has such bloodcurdling hatred to the point where it would sacrifice the lives of its own children just to kill ours?

Arabs Display Their Desire For Peace

The "palestinians" show they are truly committed to peaceful coexistence with Israel by expressing lovely and heartfelt outpourings of friendship. Chants of "death to Israel" and "death to America" were shouted during protests against Annapolis.

HEBRON, West Bank (Reuters) - A demonstrator was killed on Tuesday at a Palestinian rally against the Annapolis conference when clashes broke out between security forces loyal to President Mahmoud Abbas and Islamists who call him a traitor.

But while some Palestinians denounced their president for agreeing at the meeting near Washington to launch formal talks with Israel, others applauded his "strength" in spelling out his people's demands while seeking peace.

Abbas agreed with U.S. President George W. Bush and Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert to launch immediate talks on creating a Palestinian state alongside Israel with a goal of sealing an accord by the end of next year.

In Gaza, where Hamas Islamists seized control in June, tens of thousands had marched to chants of "Death to Israel" and called Abbas a "traitor" for accepting Israel's existence and agreeing to talks on a state in only the West Bank and Gaza.

Hamas officials dismissed a joint statement agreed by Abbas and Olmert and read out by Bush as a "waste of time", describing a pledge by Abbas to rein in Palestinian militants as "criminal" and saying Bush was "completely biased" in favour of Israel.

"Bush has failed to deliver anything for the Palestinians during his two terms in office," said senior Hamas official Sami Abu Zuhri in Gaza. "Is he going now to be able to deliver a state as he walks out of the White House?"

But some in the West Bank, where Abbas holds sway, praised the president -- often known by his familiar name Abu Mazen -- for sticking to his guns on tough "final status" issues such as the status of Jerusalem, borders and the fate of refugees.

"This is the strongest speech I have heard from Abu Mazen," said Raed Fayez, 35, in Ramallah. "Abu Mazen didn't compromise."

Nidal Mouhtasib, a 28-year-old accountant from Hebron, also voiced optimism: "Both sides expressed readiness to make concessions. I hope peace will come."

The Annapolis Sham and Arab Gangsterism

Olmert said just before the summit that he would not conduct negotiations if the palestinians didn't recognize Israel as a Jewish state. Well, various PA officials flatly rejected accepting Israel as a Jewish state, so why is Olmert in Annapolis?

Also, since the outcome of Annapolis has been predetermined to be settled on arab terms, why bother with the facade of negotiations? The very purpose of the negotiation process is to come to an agreement with a give and take from both sides. Yet it has already been determined that Jerusalem will be divided with the eastern half being the capital of the new terror state of "palestine", ALL of Judea and Samaria will be surrendered and the Temple Mount given over to the muslims, which of course means Jews will have absolutely no access. Also the so-called "right of return" will likely be forced upon Israel, which means it will cease to be a Jewish state.

The sham negotiations at Annapolis are merely for show, a pretense of a negotiated settlement between two sides. In reality this summit is for the purpose of cornering Israel and putting a gun to its head in order to force it to capitulate to all of the demands put forth by these arab gangsters.

Olmert is a Clear and Present Danger to Israel

Olmert is a treacherous bastard who fully intends to surrender to all arab demands unless he is stopped. He is sacrificing Israel to save himself from being indicted for the crimes he is being investigated for and to save his position. Like Sharon, so long as he carries out policies which the Israeli media supports, they will protect him. On top of that he has the gall to say it is not the business of diaspora Jews as to the fate of Jerusalem. Jerusalem belongs to ALL Jews the world over, it is not the private real estate of Olmert to bargain with. Lieberman and the other coalition members need to act now and quit the government and have this man removed from the Prime Minister's office. The very existence of Israel is at stake. Here is the important quote from Annapolis:

The negotiations between us will not be here in Annapolis, but rather in our home and in yours. It will be bilateral, direct, ongoing and continuous, in an effort to complete it during the course of 2008.

It will address all the issues which have thus far been evaded. We will do it directly, openly and courageously. We will not avoid any subject, we will deal with all the core issues. I have no doubt that the reality created in our region in 1967 will change significantly. [Emphasis added] While this will be an extremely difficult process for many of us, it is nevertheless inevitable. I know it. Many of my people know it. We are ready for it.

The Saudis Are Deplorable

The country of antisemites, Christian-haters, misogynists, gang-rapists and floggers still refuses to recognize Israel and won't even shake the hands of Israeli delegates attending Annapolis. Not that it would be a priviledge to shake the slimy hands of these snakes, you don't know where those hands have been. They would not even allow Israeli journalists into their embassy. It's sickening that this depraved wahabbi terror supporting regime wields so much power. And it is sickening to see western leaders grovel to them. What is most sickening of all however, is that Israel's leaders lack such self-respect as to be willing to humiliate themselves and the Jewish people by attending this farce of a summit and seek the approval from the likes of these saudi miscreants.

Saudi Arabia may be attending Tuesday's Annapolis summit, but its determined refusal to countenance even the slightest normalization of relations with Israel and Israelis was all too evident in the driving rain at its embassy here on Monday afternoon.

Several enterprising Israeli journalists managed to make their way into the premises as Arab League foreign ministers and officials were convening for consultations ahead of the summit. Some even got through a security check. Udi Segal of Channel 2 showed his Israeli government press card when asked for accreditation - successfully, at first.

However, the Saudi Embassy staffers ultimately cottoned on to the presence of Israelis on their diplomatic territory, and, somewhat unceremoniously, escorted the journalists off the premises. Israeli camera crews then filmed the Arab leaders driving in from outside the embassy security barrier, in the rain, while other media crews filmed the notables from the covered comfort of the embassy's entrance.

It had already been made plain to this reporter that he would not be admitted to a limited press briefing held at the embassy by Saudi Foreign Minister Saud al-Faisal just before the Arab League gathering. The best I could do was to ask one of the American reporters who had been invited to put a question on my behalf to Faisal: "What steps are you prepared to take right now toward normalizing ties with Israel?"

His answer, relayed to me, was simple, and later confirmed by the scene in the rain: "None
This answer sums up what a fruitless effort it is to attempt to make peace with the arabs.

Related reading: Frank Gaffney refers to Annapolis as a saudi-style gang-rape of Israel. And he compares it, as I have, to Munich 1938 when Czechoslovakia was handed over to hitler.

It is fitting that Condoleezza Rice chose the U.S. Naval Academy for the venue of today's so-called Mideast peace conference. The reputation of that extraordinary institution in Annapolis has been sullied in recent years by a succession of rapes of young women. Despite official efforts to low-ball its significance, Ms. Rice's conclave is shaping up to be a gang-rape of a nation on a scale not seen since Munich in 1938, when the British and French allowed Hitler and Mussolini to have their violent way with Czechoslovakia.


This time, the intended victim is Israel. As with the effort to appease the Nazis and Fascists nearly sixty years ago, however, the damage will not be confined to the rapee. The interests of the Free World in general and the United States in particular will suffer from what the Saudis and most of the other attendees have in mind for the Jewish State — namely, its dismemberment and ultimate destruction.


As it happens, millions Americans have lately been introduced to the Saudis' attitude towards gang-rape, pursuant to the theocratic code known as Shari'a that they seek to impose on us all. We learned that a 19-year-old Saudi woman identified only as the Girl of Qatif had been kidnapped and raped by seven men. The rapists were to receive prison sentences and whippings. The woman, though, was sentenced to receive 90 lashes for the crime of sitting in a car with a male who was not a relative. When she had the temerity to appeal her barbaric sentence, it was increased to six months in prison and 200 lashes.


There will, of course, be no punishments for the perpetrators of the coming gang-rape of Israel at Annapolis. To the contrary, the Bush Administration feels deeply indebted to the Saudi foreign minister for his participation and that of a representative of a country Ms. Rice's department lists as a state-sponsor of terror: Syria.

More Campus Antisemitism

In a scene reminiscent of 1930's Germany or the era of the pogroms in eastern Europe, Jewish students at Toronto's York university had to flee from a wolf pack of crazed, far-left, pro-terrorist "students". What upset these deviants was that the Campus Coalition of Zionists manned a table displaying informative brochures and pamphlets regarding the danger from Iran. Even sicker than the likes of Iran's brutal genocidal dictator and the rest of the islamists, are their western leftist supporters. Why those who have the priviledge of living in freedom in the west and claim themselves to be "progressive", identify with these murdering fascists, God only knows.

TORONTO – York University saw the worst antisemitic display ever on that campus last week, said Ben Feferman, senior campus coordinator for the Canadian region of Hasbara Fellowships, an Israel advocacy organization spearheaded by Aish Hatorah.

The Betar-supported Campus Coalition of Zionists (CCZ), together with Hasbarah, manned a table in Vari Hall, with permission from the university, with pamphlets and brochures about the danger emanating from Iran.

However, the situation became very difficult for the students who participated. They were vastly outnumbered by pro-Arab students who surrounded them, and eventually the pro-Israel activists fled. As they left, there was cheering by the pro-Arab mob.

According to Feferman, “I’ve never seen anything like this at York. We weren’t even discussing the issues anymore. It was pure Jew hatred. That’s what it’s come to.”
In fact, Feferman noticed an acquaintance there and said hello, but received no acknowledgement. She emailed him later that day to apologize, explaining that she didn’t want everyone to know she was Jewish. To Feferman, this episode is a red light. “We know there’s a crisis when a student on campus is afraid to reveal she’s Jewish and feels unsafe,” he said.

Religion of Perpetual Rage

What happens when you open your doors to millions of people from an alien hostile culture with no intention of assimilating, instead form their own separate enclaves with their own set of rules, are unproductive, violent and live off of the public dole? And out of fear and misguided multiculturalism, you let the problem fester for years? The consequences are an insurrection with your towns and cities periodically going up in flames and the beginnings of a possible civil war.

Once again France is burning. Mobs of "youths", that would be muslims, rampage and riot through the streets of Paris suburbs, resulting in tens of policemen injured, a school gym up in flames. The reason this time being that two boys aged 15 and 16, while recklessly riding a mini-motorcycle at high speed, crashed into a police car and were killed. So naturally, given the logic of muslims, who look for any excuse to be whipped into a violent rage, the fault lies not with the reckless youth, but with the police.

A police commissioner actually tried to talk to and reason with the savage mob. Why on Earth was this police commissioner trying to talk to these mutants? What did he think that would accomplish? The only way to communicate with brutal savages such as these is for the police to have gunned the rioters down. If you try doing this once you won't see any more rioting. Then round up the muslims and throw them out of the country. The west better get its act together.

Monday 11 pm

Violence is spreading from Villiers le Bel to a dozen neighboring communities. At least twenty policemen have been injured so far tonight (forty injured last night according to the latest figures), some of them critically. The insurgents are using firebombs, iron rods, baseball bats, and firing buckshot. Journalists are attacked, their cameras are stolen. The mayor of Villiers le Bel is running a crisis center from an undisclosed location. Interior Minister Michèle Alliot-Marie is strangely absent, silent, or ineffectual. This is not the way it is supposed to be happening in the Sarkozy government. Don’t be surprised if Alliot-Marie is replaced early next year.

Cars, dumpsters, and buildings have been torched. A school gym has gone up in flames. Shop windows that weren’t smashed last night are targets tonight.

Police investigators and several eyewitnesses corroborate the patrolmen’s version of the accident. The police car was going at a normal speed, no sirens, no hot pursuit. The mini-motorcycle came down a side street at high speed and made a left turn, crashing directly into the police car. The police remained on the scene for approximately twenty to thirty minutes until the fire department ambulance arrived.

President Sarkozy, on a state visit to China, issued a plea for calm. It must have seemed quite logical from where he’s standing… but it’s totally inaudible here on the receiving end.

Religion of Raving Lunatics

Yet another manifestation of the deranged minds so prevalent within islam. A British school teacher in Sudan was arrested and will be punished with 40 lashes for allowing her class of seven year olds to name a teddy bear mohamed. This is considered blasphemy against their mass murdering, pedophile prophet. A group of insane degenerates who have no other lives but going to mosque, reading the koran, and being whipped into a violent frenzy over the most trivial matters, stood outside the Khartoum police station shouting death threats against her. I'm convinced islam is a severe mental illness. One can only wonder why a westerner would want to work in a muslim country.
A British primary school teacher arrested in Sudan faces up to 40 lashes for blasphemy after letting her class of 7-year-olds name a teddy bear Muhammad.

Gillian Gibbons, a 54-year-old mother of two from Liverpool, was arrested at her lodgings at Khartoum's Unity High School yesterday, accused of insulting the Prophet of Islam.

Her colleagues said that they feared for her safety after reports that groups of young men had gathered outside the Khartoum police station where she was taken and were shouting death threats.

The Unity school is a Christian-run co-educational private school that teaches both Christians and Muslims and is popular with Sudanese professionals and expatriate workers.

Bishop Ezekiel Kondo, chairman of the school council, told The Times that the school was in dispute with authorities over taxes, and suggested that Ms Gibbons, who arrived in Khartoum in August, may have been caught up in that. "The thing may be very simple but there are people who are trying to make it bigger. It's a kind of blackmail," he said.

Another source at the school blamed another teacher, from a well-connected Khartoum family, who had raised the issue with the headmistress but was rebuffed and decided to complain.

Teachers at the school, in central Khartoum only a mile from the River Nile, said that Ms Gibbons had made an innocent mistake by letting her pupils choose their favourite name for the toy as part of a school project.

Latest Theory on Syria Strike

An expert in nuclear proliferation, Prof. Uzi Even of Tel Aviv University, is claiming that the site which Israel struck in Syria was not a nuclear reactor, but far worse, was actually a factory for assembling nuclear bombs.


Yossi Melman, a respected investigative journalist, reports in Haaretz Thursday, that the Israeli air strike in early September may not have been against a nuclear reactor under construction but something more sinister: a facility for a much later stage in the nuclear production process.

Melman cites Prof. Uzi Even of Tel Aviv University as being the first to public challenge this assumption. "On the basis of an analysis of the same satellite photos, which have been published in the media and on Web sites and are accessible to everyone, he believes that the structure that was attacked and destroyed was not a nuclear reactor."

The target, in the opinion of this former worker in the Dimona nuclear facility and a Knesset member from the Meretz party, an expert in nuclear proliferation, the plant was for a purpose even more ominous. "In my estimation this was something very nasty and vicious, and even more dangerous than a reactor," says Even. "I have no information, only an assessment, but I suspect that it was a plant for processing plutonium, namely a factory for assembling the bomb."

In other words, Even believes, "Syria already had several kilograms of plutonium, and it was involved in building a bomb factory (the assembling of one bomb requires about four kilograms of fissionable material)."

Foggy Bottom Witholding Critical Reports of PA

As has been done during previous "peace" summits, palestinian misdeeds are being swept under the rug so as not to hinder the process, the creation of a palestinian state and a false "peace" agreement on the Arab's terms. Israeli security is not at all a consideration for them. At the request of the palestinians, the Arabist State Department is concealing from Israel, reports critical of the way the PA is fighting, or, I should say, not fighting terrorism.

JERUSALEM – At the request of the Palestinians, the U.S. has been holding back from Israel reports critical of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas' purported attempts to fight terrorism in the West Bank, according to diplomatic sources familiar with the reports.

The U.S. has been closely monitoring Abbas' implementation of commitments to fight armed groups in the West Bank ahead of this week's Annapolis summit. In line with understandings, State Department and U.S. security representatives were to share their observations with Israel while the U.S. also monitors Israeli commitments to dismantle anti-terror road blocks and to take initial steps toward bulldozing what are termed illegal outposts, or Jewish structures built in the West Bank without government permits.

While the U.S. has been reporting to the Palestinians on Israel's actions on the ground ahead of Annapolis, according to informed diplomatic sources, it has withheld some State Department reports critical of Abbas' Fatah security forces purported fight against terror.

Fatah forces in recent weeks carried out what it called arrest operations against some gunmen in the West Bank, including members of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine and leaders of Fatah's declared military wing, the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades.

According to Israeli security sources, Fatah rounded up some Brigades and PFLP members in the northern West Bank city of Nablus and transferred them to nearby Jericho, where they spent one night in a Fatah compound and were then freed but told they must stay in Jericho until after Annapolis. Most gunmen continue to receive room and board at Fatah compounds.

Brits Express Contempt for Disabled Vets

Has England completely lost its collective mind? British soldiers who lost their limbs, were jeered and driven from a public swimming pool where they were sent to do their weekly physical therapy.

This is absolutely appalling, shameful and disgraceful. Worse than lacking appreciation or being indifferent to their soldiers, this was an expression of outright hostility and contempt. How do these people live with themselves having so horribly treated these men who lost limbs fighting to preserve their freedom? What is happening to Britain? The people that behaved this way have not an ounce of humanity or a concience. I am beginning to believe that perhaps Britain does not deserve to survive, that perhaps it deserves to come under the rule of the islamists. I doubt that muslims who demanded public swimming pools have separate times for men and women to use the facilities were met with such hostility.

Injured soldiers who lost their limbs fighting for their country have been driven from a swimming pool training session by jeering members of the public…

The unpleasant scenes broke out at Leatherhead Leisure Centre in Surrey when the wounded veterans, who are at Headley Court Military Hospital, had to use the 25-metre public pool because the hydro-pool at the defence rehabilitation centre is not big enough for swimming.

The servicemen were about to begin their weekly swimming therapy in closed-off lanes when they were verbally abused by the swimmers.

One woman in her 30s was said to be infuriated by the lane closures saying the soldiers did not deserve to be there when she had paid.

It was also reported that others complained that limbless servicemen were scaring children at the centre.

The atmosphere was said to be so tense that the soldiers’ instructors removed them.

IAEA Proves it is Completely Useless

Inept IAEA head mohamed ElBaradei claims that the equally inept UN agency is in the dark about Iran's nuclear activities. Of course the IAEA has no interest in finding out, and has no intention of ever taking substantative action against Iran.

VIENNA (AFP) - The UN atomic watchdog said Thursday it was in the dark about Iran's disputed nuclear programme, as its 35-member board seemed divided on how to get Tehran to shed more light on its activities.

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) "has so far not been able to verify some important aspects of Iran's nuclear programme," its director general Mohamed ElBaradei told a board meeting here.

He specifically cited key questions related to the scope and nature of Iran's centrifuge enrichment activities, "as well as those relevant to alleged studies and other activities that could have military applications".

As a result, the UN watchdog was "unable to provide credible assurance about the absence of undeclared nuclear material and activities," ElBaradei complained.

The Egyptian-born diplomat noted that the IAEA had seen an increased level of cooperation from Iran in answering questions about the past, but its knowledge of Tehran's current programme has "diminished" since 2006.

Furthermore, Iran's cooperation was more "reactive than pro-active," he lamented.

Western countries described ElBaradei's findings as "disturbing", arguing that tougher sanctions were needed to force Iran to suspend uranium enrichment, a potential pathway to the atom bomb, and make a full confession about the nature of its nuclear activities, both past and present.

"Despite four years of intensive investigation... the IAEA has stated that its knowledge of Iran's nuclear programme is diminishing," the US ambassador to the IAEA, Gregory Schulte, told board members.

IDF Eliminates Terrorist

The IDF killed al-aqsa martyrs brigade terrorist leader mohammed qusah during a shoot-out in Tulkarm. Another three terrorists were injured and 15 others were arrested. Among the wounded was moushir mansur, who was pardoned by Olmert as part of that foolish amnesty agreement. And remember these mutants represent the "moderate" terror faction which is part of fatah, Israel's "peace" partners. Great job by the IDF, here's hoping they continue to thin the herd.

Shaky calm before Annapolis peace summit tested on Sunday as IDF forces raided a West Bank city after the murder of an Israeli settler last week.

According to Palestinian officials undercover IDF troops entered the city of Tulkarm in the early afternoon and encircled a local café where a number of wanted men belonging to the al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades - the military wing of President Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah - were currently gathered.

A heavy exchange of fire soon ensued between the gunmen and the Israeli forces, now backed by additional infantry troops. The shootout resulted in the death of Mohammed Qusah, who Palestinian officials confirmed was the head of al-Aqsa's Tulkarm cells, as well as the injury of three Palestinian gunmen and the arrest of 15 others.

One of the wounded gunmen is Moushir Mansur, a senior member of al-Aqsa who was pardoned as part of the amnesty agreement for Fatah operatives between Israel and the Palestinian Authority. Qusah, who also had ties with Hizbullah, had not been included in the agreement.

Mansur and the other wounded gunmen were taken to an Israeli hospital for medical treatment and those detained were taken for further questioning. No Israeli casualties were reported.

It remains unclear if the brigades will respond to the raid, particularly as most of the organization is bound by the amnesty agreement and its commanders are unlikely to intentionally sabotage Abbas' efforts at the Annapolis peace conference. However the organization did officially claim responsibility for the murder of Israeli settler Ido Zoldan near Kedumim last week.

Don't Redivide Jerusalem

Watch this moving video, "Don't Turn Back the Clock" about Jerusalem. Many Israelis sacrificed their lives to reunite Jerusalem and liberate the Temple Mount in the six day war. Now Israel's current leaders blithely speak about surrendering to its genocidal muslim enemies what was so hard fought to win, all for a non-existent "peace". This is a tragedy in the making and will lead to a second holocaust should Jerusalem be divided again, with the eastern half being the capital of an islamic terror state.

The Annapolis Abomination

It will not be a peace summit taking place in Annapolis, but the rape and murder of Israel. And if there's anything the Arabs and muslims are accomplished at, it is rape and murder. The Annapolis plan is to systematically tear Israel apart piece by piece to be handed over to her bloodthirsty enemies. The Golan Heights is on the Agenda, according to Syria, which says this has been confirmed by the U.S.
The United States has agreed to put the occupied Golan Heights on the agenda of the Annapolis peace conference, but Syria will decide whether to attend when it receives the schedule, Foreign Minister Walid Moualem said on Friday.

"The United States has sent confirmation that it will include the Syrian-Israeli track... The Golan... On the Annapolis schedule," the Syrian news agency quoted Moualem as saying.

There was no immediate comment from Washington.

The Damascus government has repeatedly said it would only attend the US-hosted conference, which aims to restart talks on Palestinian statehood, if the Golan Heights, occupied by Israel since 1967, are on the agenda.

Moualem was in Cairo for a meeting of Arab foreign ministers to prepare a common strategy for the Annapolis conference on Nov. 27. He said Syria learnt about the inclusion of the Golan through Arab ministers who contacted Washington about the issue.

Earleir, Saudi Arabia's foreign minister said he will attend next week's US-sponsored Middle East peace conference but insisted he would not allow "theatrics" like handshakes with Israeli officials, saying the gathering must make serious progress.


Caroline Glick reveals that the U.S. government is firmly taking the side of the palestinians against Israel, and according to a senior IDF officer, the U.S. has never been so hostile. Between this and putting the Golan Heights on the agenda, this is a horrendous betrayal coming from the Bush administration. And this coming from "the best friend Israel has ever had in the White House", so we have been told repeatedly for almost seven years. But far worse is the Olmert government in its betrayal of Israel. They are mostly to blame for being too feckless to resist State Department and administration pressure. Israel continues to pay the price for the White House's failures in the Middle East. Like previous administrations, this one too is sacrificing Israel at the end of its term to salvage its legacy.

...By refusing to acknowledge Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas's Fatah party's direct involvement in terrorism and indeed the direct involvement of his official Fatah "security forces" in terrorism, the Americans have shown that their benchmarks for Palestinian compliance with their commitments to Israel are not necessarily based on the reality on the ground. Then too, the US demands for wide-ranging Israeli security concessions to the Palestinians even before the "peace" conference at Annapolis have shown that Israel's security is of little concern to the State Department.

IDF sources blame the shooting murder of Ido Zoldan on Monday night by Fatah terrorists on Israel's decision to bow to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice's demand to take down 24 security roadblocks in Judea and Samaria. If it hadn't been for US pressure, they say, it is quite possible that the 29-year-old father of two small children would be alive today.

But this is of no concern for Washington. As Rice has made clear repeatedly, the US wants to see "signs of progress." Since the Palestinians are taking no action against terror and doing nothing to lessen their society's jihadist fervor, the only way to achieve "signs of progress" is by forcing Israel to make concessions to the Palestinians. And so that is exactly what Rice and her associates are doing.

Rice is able to force Israel to accept her demands because she faces the weakest Israeli leaders the country has ever produced. Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni and Defense Minister Ehud Barak are all incapable of standing up to the Americans or even arguing with them. Olmert's and Livni's weakness has been apparent since their mishandling of the war with Hizbullah last summer and their negotiations over the cease-ire agreement with Rice. For his part, throughout his brief and disastrous tenure as prime minister, Barak behaved as though he were then president Bill Clinton's employee...

Sharia Fashion

The fashion industry is the latest area in which islamic influence is spreading its ugly tentacles.

KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters Life!) - Islamic fashion is broadening its appeal beyond the faithful as women everywhere are increasingly drawn to its flowing lines, says renowned Malaysian designer Melinda Looi.

Looi, who hails from a dressmaking family, first caught the public's eye with her prize-winning graduation collection in 1995. The award-winning designer spoke to Reuters on the sidelines of the Malaysian International Fashion Week:

Q. Do you think Islamic fashion is catching on?

A. My designs are not very Islamic. I'm slowly making Islamic clothing, because I think the Islamic fashion events are really getting big, so I'm slowly involving myself in all that, since I live in a Muslim country, and there is a huge market for it.

A lot of people like the Europeans really love wearing the abaya dress, it's a huge market, so we are slowly doing that. In our collection every season in our ready-to-wear we try to put in some kind of design that is inspired by the Muslim culture.

Disgusting. Why would any woman in the west want to wear muslim inspired fashion? When I think of muslim attire for women, I can only think of a brutal, oppressive way of life, of being chattel, of always being covered from head to toe, of genital mutilation and submission, of stoning, gang-rape and flogging. That is the life for a typical muslim woman. What on Earth is inspirational about that? Why should the west want to import any part of muslim "culture"? Why would western women want to imitate islamic women? I certainly hope this bitch Melinda Looi goes out of business.

Victory for muslim Terrorists in the Philippines

Another victory for the global jihad. This time it is the Philippino government which has submitted to islam. They have reached a deal with muslim terrorists to give away part of their own country to create a separate homeland for the medieval death cultists. An alternate strategy would have been to keep the territory and kick the muslims out, perhaps send them to malaysia or some other country which is already islamic. The world little by little is capitulating to muslim demands rather than fighting the jihad. What good can come out of creating yet more islamic terror states? The international community is set to create an islamic terror state out of Israeli territory, we also have the prospect of an independent Kosovo carved out of Serbian territory and now the Philipines.

KUALA LUMPUR (AFP) - - The Philippines government and separatist rebels have struck a deal on creating a Muslim homeland in the country's south which is expected to lead to a peace accord next year, officials said Thursday.



The agreement on the extent of territory to be handed over had been a major stumbling block in the peace talks that opened when a ceasefire was forged with the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) in 2001.

The two sides did not disclose the new borders agreed after two days of talks here, but Malaysian officials said the territory would be greater than the present autonomous region in the troubled island of Mindanao.

"After more than three decades of problems in Mindanao, it is for the government to give concessions. It could not be the other side, so the government has to concede what it think is reasonable," said Philippines chief negotiator Rodolfo Garcia.

In an issue known as "ancestral domain," the land in question consists of untitled communal farms that came under formal state ownership when the Philippines became a Spanish colony in the late 16th century.

"We are confident that the momentum of signing the ancestral domain agreement will be able to carry us forward in the other tests and challenges ahead," Garcia said.

He said the agreement would be wrapped up with other elements into a "final peace agreement which we expect to be able to reach by the middle of 2008, by August of 2008."

Terrorist Moles Inside the U.S. Government

And while the Naomi Wolfs live in their alternate reality, believing muslims are being arbitrarily arrested, here in the real world the exact reverse is occuring. Muslims are obtaining sensitive jobs inside the CIA and FBI without adequate background checks. Even after they are found to have ties to al qaeda and hezbollah, they are allowed to stay in their jobs because the government agencies are afraid of being sued for discrimination. Meanwhile Arabic-speaking Saphardic Jews and non-muslim Arabs are actually the ones being discriminated against by the FBI and CIA, they are being denied jobs as translators. What kind of an insane policy is it for intelligence and law enforcement agencies to hire those who are likely to sympathize with the enemies we are fighting, all the while denying jobs to those who would be loyal to America? So now we find ourselves in a situation where the government agencies which are supposed to protect us are being heavily infiltrated by those who's aim is to kill us. This is what happens when you place a higher priority on the avoidance of offending muslims then on national security.

Thanks to lax background checks, even after 9/11, the Hezbollah spy who managed to obtain sensitive jobs at the FBI and CIA is not the first terrorist supporter to infiltrate the U.S. government.

An alleged al-Qaida operative also infiltrated the Environmental Protection Agency, according to federal investigators and court documents obtained by WND.

The case, details of which are revealed here for the first time, involves Waheeda Tehseen, a Pakistani national who obtained a sensitive position with the EPA in Washington as a toxicologist even though she was not a U.S. citizen.

Like the Lebanese national suspected of passing secrets to Hezbollah, Tehseen lied about her citizenship on her government application, a falsehood that the government failed – in both cases – to catch in its security background investigation.

In hiring Tehseen in 1998, the EPA also missed another red flag in her file – her husband's ties to Pakistani intelligence, which has a long history of clandestine support for both the Taliban and al-Qaida. Her husband served as a major in the Pakistani military specializing in intelligence.

FBI investigators say that while Tehseen had access to classified information as a toxicologist, she and her husband ran a charitable front for Osama bin Laden's inner circle in Peshawar, Pakistan. She even got colleagues to donate to the front – called Help Orphans and Widows, or HOW – which, among other things, operated an orphanage and madrassa for more than 200 boys on the Pakistani-Afghan border.

Investigators say Tehseen, a "very devout" Muslim who wears a hijab, was really acting as a conduit for money funneled to bin Laden from the Missouri-based Islamic American Relief Agency, which the Treasury Department has blacklisted for helping fund bin Laden's operations overseas. Treasury has frozen IARA's assets, and the FBI has conducted raids on its offices.

Investigators also suspect the building she used for the orphanage doubled as a safehouse for al-Qaida.

"She had big-time contacts with al-Qaida, including with people just once removed from bin Laden himself," said an FBI special agent familiar with the case.

Naomi Wolf's Misplaced Priorities

I was watching Naomi Wolf, a supposed feminist, on the O'Reilly factor being interviewed by a guest host about her new book "The End of America". And there she was perversly comparing the president's tactics to fight terror, to the tactics used by Hitler, Stalin and Mussolini. She claims the president has established secret prisons, is restricting the press, surveilling ordinary citizens and arbitrarily detaining and releasing citizens. She also compared the treatment of muslim terrorist prisoners in Guantanimo and Abu Ghrab to the Gulags, criticizing what she considers to be torture and suggesting they should be tried the way every day criminals are tried in this country, through the court system. As far as I'm concerned these sub-human beasts are treated far too civil and nicely in these prisons. They are provided with meals which conform to muslim dietary laws, given korans and so forth. Does Naomi Wolf realize that these mutant savages would gang-rape her, flog her and genitally mutilate her if given the chance, that is if they didn't kill her instead? Why does she concern herself with the way they are being treated? To my way of thinking, there is no torture too harsh for them to be subjected to. What is it about the progressive movement that must always run interference for the most barbaric brutal monsters on Earth, thereby putting innocent people in danger? As a feminist, she should instead be speaking out on behalf of women throughout the muslim world who are subjected to the most ghastly and horrific atrocities and never mind worrying about the welfare of terrorists. Her next book should be an expose' on the plight of muslim women.

A Victory for the Good Guys

Britain's Channel 4 has been vindicated over their undercover mosque investigation. If you'll recall a few months back the channel aired a documentary which broadcast speeches captured on hidden video inciting hatred against Jews, Christians, women and gays. The police had accused channel 4 of editing the videos in order, they claim, to misrepresent the views of the preachers and clerics and therefore create an unfair perception of the muslim community. It turns out however, the media watchdog group Ofcom dismissed the police charges saying the broadcast was a "legitimate investigation, uncovering matters of important public interest." And now the production company is considering legal charges against the police. Although this particular situation turned out well, this is the kind of persecution that people trying to uncover and expose sinister activities within muslim communities in the west are going to be faced with. They will be accused of "racism" and "islamophobia", and they will be hounded and harassed by muslim pressure groups and authorities attempting to placate the muslim community.

...Adding to the police embarrassment, Ofcom continued: "On the evidence (including untransmitted footage and scripts), Ofcom found that the broadcaster had accurately represented the material it had gathered and dealt with the subject matter responsibly and in context."

Following today's ruling, Channel 4 called the police's actions "perverse" and said they had, in some people's eyes, given "legitimacy to people preaching a message of hate".

David Davis, the shadow home secretary, accused the police of stepping beyond their remit.

"Their action in submitting a complaint to Ofcom about a television programme raises wider issues of what action it is appropriate for police forces to take in cases like this," he said. "Once they were clear that no criminal offence had been committed, it was in my view a serious misjudgement to continue to pursue the editorial team and risked impeding freedom of speech."

The programme featured undercover recordings from speakers alleged to be homophobic, anti-Semitic, sexist and condemnatory of non-Muslims.

Excerpts from preachers and teachers included "Allah created the woman deficient" and "by the age of ten, it becomes an obligation on us to force her (young girls) to wear hijab and if she doesn't wear hijab, we hit her".

Other statements included "take that homosexual and throw him off the mountain" and "whoever changes his religion from Al Islam to anything else - kill him in the Islamic state"...

Religion of Gang Rapes and Flogging

An excellent editorial on the horror that is saudi arabia. A 19 year old Saudi girl and her male companion were repeadedly gang-raped by a group of seven depraved islamic beasts for being alone together in a car. Although the rapists were sentenced to between 10 months and 5 years in prison, the victims were also sentenced to receive punishment in the form of floggings. In saudi arabia, a monsterous hell-hole controlled by the deranged and psychotic wahhabi sect, it is a crime for an unrelated man and woman to be in each others company. The editorial rightly asks why the west placates and has full diplomatic relations with this wicked regime. It also suggests that saudi arabia should be completely isolated diplomatically and economically. I would go a step further and say saudi arabia should be invaded, occupied, the royal family toppled, Mecca and Medina bombed and the west taking control of its oil fields. There is no reason this vile kingdom should have the right to exist. The west however has no moral courage. So long as there are millions to be made from doing business with the saudis, immoral, corrupt and greedy scoundrels like James Baker won't concern themselves with the "Fatimas" of this world. While women and girls are being gang-raped and flogged in saudi arabia, Baker and his ilk live the good life off of the millions they have made from their business ventures with this heinous regime.

...So let Fatima stand as the totem of one of the most evil countries in the world, one which is dominated by the insane Wahhabist sect; a land where children are taught to hate Jews and the West; where young men are so perverted by hatred that they can be sexually aroused sufficiently to rape a man and woman they find alone; a land which produced 18 of the 22 suicide bombers of 9/11; and which has spread a vast network of terror-cells across the world.

For the international Islamist threat has been intellectually fuelled by Saudi Arabia; as have, financially, the madrassahs across the world which promote jihad and suicide bombings.

Saudi feels contempt for us; and what does the West do, but placates, conciliates, permits: hence, the utterly ludicrous notion that at the London Olympics there should be a Muslim area, at the centre of which should be a 25,000-worshipper mosque.

So much for the Olympian spirit; but still, if the IOC ever introduces flogging, or gang-rape into the games, Saudi will be certain to get golds galore.

So, why do we and the EU have dull diplomatic relations with this dictatorship of floggers and rapists? Why did a government delegation meekly accept the sexual apartheid of a delegation of ministers to Saudi? Why do we accept their diseased, demented norms? Ah, goes the argument, because we have more leverage when we talk to them and accept their ways.

Rubbish. Utter rubbish. We want their oil and we want their markets, and the raped and violated teenage Fatima may be flogged by these savages with impunity, in order that we may retain our commercial links.

And, if you wanted further proof — though God knows, none should now be necessary — that the EU is a hollow, meaningless vessel, the fact that Saudi Arabia feels free to flog anyone 200 times, never mind a rape victim, not only proves that this vile country doesn’t give a damn for the “core principles” of the EU, but it also knows that the EU will do nothing serious to defend those principles.

T here shouldn’t be a functioning embassy in Riyadh: Saudi airports should be lunar in their silence; oil-tankers should be immobilised in Jeddah; and the heathen barbarians running Saudi should remain in economic and diplomatic purdah, until they start conforming with civilised conduct, as is understood in Borneo, Peru, Greenland, China, India, Rwanda — indeed everywhere where Islamicists are not in power.

For, unless we stand up for Fatima now, we are mere whores, meekly waiting our turn to be buggered by the rapists of Riyadh. (

End the "Peace" Process Charade

An open letter to Mahmoud Abbas by the Palestinian Canadian community Associations explicitly states their desire not for a two-state solution and to live in peace and coexistence with Israel, but for the extermination of Israel. Here is the most relevant passage of this abhorrent genocidal document:

...It is our belief that the purpose of the Annapolis round of negotiations is to extract further critical concessions from the Palestinians while further delaying final status agreements. In particular, we believe that Israel will attempt to redefine the conflict with the Palestinians as being only about ending the occupation of Jerusalem, the West Bank and Gaza, or parts thereof. Such a redefinition leads the Palestinians into the trap of the “two-state” formula which subverts our legitimate rights under international law. We stress that the central issue in the Palestinian conflict with Israel has always been the dispossession of the Palestinian people from their land and property caused by the Zionist ethnic cleansing of 1948 and the Israeli denial to Palestinians of the basic human right to return and to live in peace and security as equal citizens on their land.

We further specifically caution you against any recognition of Israel as a “Jewish” state. Such a recognition would give Israel the façade of moral and legal legitimacy while critically compromising the full implementation of the inalienable Palestinian right of return. In addition, it would contradict the struggle by Palestinian citizens of Israel to maintain their identity and gain equal rights as citizens. We point out that Israel was established through United Nations General Assembly Resolution 181 (Partition Resolution) which does not envisage or consent to the establishment of states on a religious or ethnic basis. In addition, we underscore that Israel was admitted as a member of the United Nations on the basis of its having recognized the full right of return of the Palestinian people on the basis of United Nations General Assembly Resolution 194 (Right of Return Resolution).

Today it is more apparent than ever that the only basis on which peace can be brought to the historic land of Palestine is through the establishment of a unified secular democratic state in which all citizens are equal and share the same rights and responsibilities regardless of a citizen’s religion...

Did they declare this with a straight face? Does any sane person believe that once this "unified" entity of "palestine" comes into existence it will be anything other than a brutally repressive muslim state ruled by sharia and the denial of rights to non-muslims? The difference between a militant muslim and a "moderate" muslim is whether Israel should be destroyed with bombs and missiles or through demographic means. Either way, the goal is the end of Jewish sovereignty, of all Jewish cultural and political existence and the expulsion or genocide of its Jewish population. So why will Israel attend Annapolis, what is there to discuss with those who have absolutely no intention of ever excepting the existence of a Jewish state in their midst no matter what the extent of its borders are?

A New Era in Mideast Policy

Mark Silverberg declares it is the end of the Bush doctrine and the return to power of the Arabist wing of the Republican party. No longer will U.S. foreign policy be based on the promotion of freedom and democracy in the fight against islamic terror. It is back to the "realist" approach of accommodating and dealing with dictators and treating Israel as a strategic liability rather than an asset. Why it is believed that reverting back to policies which have failed miserably in the past and led to 9/11 will somehow work now, is anyone's guess. What is realistic about cozying up to Middle East dictators and creating another Arab-muslim terror state and expecting positive results?

Unfortunately, Annapolis is only the beginning of Israel's problems -- at least until a new U.S.administration comes to power with a different perspective on Israel's strategic importance to the U.S. in the Middle East.

As it stands now, American foreign policy in the Middle East has shifted from actively promoting democratic change to the previous policy of realpolitik -- a policy based on the appeasement of dictators and despots that was discredited in the post 9/11 world primarily because it had failed to secure American interests and security even in its heyday in the 1980s and early 1990s.

The policy of "realism" was based on cold, calculated political and material considerations rather than on moral, ethical or idealistic concerns. It was this approach to American foreign policy that sent hundreds of thousands of people across the Third World to their deaths in the name of protecting American national interests. It was this policy that looked askance at the Serbian genocide of its neighbors and the paramilitary slaughters in Vukovar and the concentration camps in Omarska in which the "realists" maintained that America didn't "have a dog in their fight". It was this policy that put forth the belief that Arab oil wealth and "moderate" dictators could forever contain the seething anger in the Middle East. It was this policy that forced then Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir to desist from retaliating against Iraq for its SCUD missile attacks on Israel during the first Gulf War lest Israeli retaliation fracture the Arab coalition that Bush 41 had cobbled together to expel Iraqi forces from Kuwait. The U.S. fear of losing its coalition ultimately left Saddam Hussein in power after the war and laid the groundwork for Saddam's retribution against the southern Iraqi Shiites and the northern Kurds -- an American betrayal they never forgot.

Saddam's subsequent $25,000 "martyrdom payments" to the families of Palestinian suicide bombers promoted terrorism in Israel and eventually scuttled the Oslo Accords. It was these "realist" policies that lead the Palestinians and their Arab supporters to escalate the intifada to unprecedented levels of violence.

It was this same "realistic policy" that, in 1991, led then U.S. Secretary of State James Baker to declare that "Syria has no place on the State Department's list of states that sponsor terrorism" -- a country that was then and remains a leading sponsor of both Hezbollah and numerous Palestinian terrorist organizations and (for all intents and purposes) is a surrogate of the Iranian mullahs.

In short, the change in American foreign policy direction that has now been undertaken by the current Bush administration may well prove to be as problematic as the Bush Doctrine it purports to replace. As Michael Rubin of the Washington-based American Enterprise Institute has correctly concluded: "Realism promotes short-term gain, often at the expense of long-term security."

As if this isn't distressing enough, the conclusion raised at the "strategic dialogue" conference in NY, was that the U.S. is essentially telling Israel that it should get used to living with a nuclear Iran.

...The message of the American participants in the meeting was clear: Neither the U.S. nor Israel has a military option against Iran. Bombing the nuclear facilities would cause oil prices to skyrocket and would only strengthen the extremists in Tehran. In their view, Iran would respond by hitting the American soldiers stationed in Iraq and the oil facilities in the Gulf, and would begin terrorist operations in America. The year 2008 is already lost, they believe, and one should wait quietly for the end of President Bush's term of office since he conditions dialogue with the Iranians on delaying their nuclear plans. Whoever comes after Bush, certainly if he is a Democrat, will throw these conditions into the trash and will strive for a quick dialogue with Iran.

In less diplomatic language, the Americans say to the Israelis something like this: It is best for you to get used to living with a nuclear Iran, which will look less menacing if there is an American embassy there.

But they are threatening to destroy us, the Israelis protest.

We also heard such threats from the Soviets - the "we shall bury you" speech made by Khrushchev - and from the Chinese, say the Americans. Our people also spoke about a preventive strike against nuclear facilities. You simply lag 40 to 50 years behind us in strategic understanding. Instead of whining, it is better for you to talk to us about security arrangements in the era of Iranian nuclear power...

Palestinians Respond to Israel's "Good Will" Gesture

The palestinians respond to Israel's "good will" gesture of releasing hundreds of terrorists, by murdering a 29 year old Jewish husband and father in Kedumim. Oh, and the murder was perpetrated by the al-Aqsa martyrs brigades, the "military" wing of Israel's "moderate" fatah peace partners.

Ido Zoldan, 29, of the settlement of Shavei Shomron was murdered Monday in a late night shooting attack near the Palestinian village of Funduk in the area of the Kedumim settlement in the northern West Bank.

The terrorists opened fire at the Israeli from a passing car at around 11:30 pm. Magen David Adom paramedics who were called to the site attempted to revive the man, but pronounced him dead a short while later.

Zoldan was survived by his wife Tehila and his two small children, three-year-old Aharon and one-year-old Rachel. His family is well-known in Kedumim. His father, Nahman Zoldan, is one of the biggest contractors in the West Bank's Jewish settlements.

Ido Zoldan was evacuated from the community of Homesh during the 2005 disengagement from Gaza. Since then he was active in the "Homesh First" group and was among those who went up to Homesh two years after the evacuation.

In an attempt to locate the terrorists, the IDF has begun combing the area.

Desmond Tutu is a Lying Fraud

That worthless fraud Desmond Tutu remains silent about the genocide and slavery being inflicted upon the people of Sudan by that country's abominable arab-muslim regime. Simon Denq asks where is Desmond Tutu when it comes to his people in Sudan calling out for freedom? The bastard is nowhere to be found. But he can be found making speeches lying about Israel being an "apartheid" state. He was visible when it came to condemning white South Africans during the years of apartheid. But when the perpetrators are Arabs, muslims and black Africans, he is nowhere to be found. He has nothing to say about the real apartheid and horrific human rights violations being practiced throughout the muslim world even when its victims are his fellow black Africans.

Late last month, I went to hear Bishop Desmond Tutu speak at Boston's Old South Church at a conference on "Israel Apartheid." Tutu is a well respected man of God. He brought reconciliation between blacks and whites in South Africa. That he would lead a conference that damns the Jewish state is very disturbing to me.

The State of Israel is not an apartheid state. I know because I write this from Jerusalem where I have seen Arab mothers peacefully strolling with their families -- even though I also drove on Israeli roads protected by walls and fences from Arab bullets and stones. I know Arabs go to Israeli schools, and get the best medical care in the world. I know they vote and have elected representatives to the Israeli Parliament. I see street signs in Arabic, an official language here. None of this was true for blacks under Apartheid in Tutu's South Africa.

I also know countries that do deserve the apartheid label: My country, Sudan, is on the top of the list, but so are Iran, Saudi Arabia and Egypt. What has happened to my people in Sudan is a thousand times worse than Apartheid in South Africa. And no matter how the Palestinians suffer, they suffer nothing compared to my people. Nothing. And most of the suffering is the fault of their leaders. Bishop Tutu, I see black Jews walking down the street here in Jerusalem. Black like us, free and proud.

Tutu said Israeli checkpoints are a nightmare. But checkpoints are there because Palestinians are sent into Israel to blow up and kill innocent women and children. Tutu wants checkpoints removed. Do you not have doors in your home, Bishop? Does that make your house an apartheid house? If someone, Heaven forbid, tried to enter with a bomb, we would want you to have security people "humiliating" your guests with searches, and we would not call you racist for doing so. We all go through checkpoints at every airport. Are the airlines being racist? No.

Yes, the Palestinians are inconvenienced at checkpoints. But why, Bishop Tutu, do you care more about that inconvenience than about Jewish lives?

Bishop, when you used to dance for Mandela's freedom, we Africans -- all over Africa -- joined in. Our support was key in your freedom. But when children in Burundi and Kinshasa, all the way to Liberia and Sierra Leone, and in particular in Sudan, cried and called for rescue, you heard but chose to be silent.

Today, black children are enslaved in Sudan, the last place in the continent of Africa where humans are owned by other humans -- I was part of the movement to stop slavery in Mauritania, which just now abolished the practice. But you were not with us, Bishop Tutu.

So where is Desmond Tutu when my people call out for freedom? Slaughter and genocide and slavery are lashing Africans right now. Where are you for Sudan, Bishop Tutu? You are busy attacking the Jewish state. Why?

When Will the Pals Start Making Good Will Gestures?

How much more damage will Olmert be allowed to inflict upon Israel before he is ousted from power? The latest outrage is a "good will gesture" to release 441 palestinian terrorists who will no doubt go right back to committing terrorism, because that is what sub-human, mass murdering barbarians do. You can't humanize these monsters, you cannot transform savages into civilized human beings. Just what "good will gestures" will Israel receive in return? Not even so much as releasing their kidnapped soldier, because the Israeli government does not even dare make any demands whatsoever. I'm tired of pressure being put onto Israel for one-sided concessions, whereas nothing is ever expected of the palestinians. This good-will gesture comes in the wake of the PA leadership refusing even to do as little as acknowledge Israel as a Jewish state, let alone ending terror and incitement. So what is the motive of Olmert and his cabinet to release hundreds of terrorists and put vital Israeli historic and strategic territory on the negotiating block to its enemies? Do they have a gun to their heads? And why is a PM with such low popularity still able to have this kind of power and make moves contrary to the desires of the vast majority of the Israeli population?
(IsraelNN.com) The Cabinet has approved a request by Prime Minister Ehud Olmert to free 441 Palestinian Authority terrorists as another "good will gesture" to PA Chairman and Fatah leader Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen). All could be free by Friday, after the list is reviewed by a ministerial committee.

Shas Minister of Industry, Trade and Labor, Eli Yishai voted against the plan, as did Yisrael Beiteinu (Israel Our Home) Minister of Strategic Affairs, Avigdor Lieberman. Transportation Minister Shaul Mofaz, a former Defense Minister and member of Olmert's own Kadima party, also voted against it.


The Prime Minister met with the PA Chairman Monday afternoon in another attempt to bring the two sides closer together on an agreement prior to the Middle East summit schedule for early next week in Annapolis, Maryland.

Despite the fact that Israel has released hundreds of other terrorists this year, and granted amnesty to hundreds more, the PA was dissatisfied with the "gesture," having handed Jerusalem officials a list of 2,000 prisoners it wanted to be freed.

Britain's Royal Dhimmis

A close confidant of Princess Diana up until her death, Simone Simmons, claims that the princess wanted to visit a children's charity in Israel and was prevented by the Foreign and Common wealth office supposedly for security reasons. Yet princess Diana herself believed that the real reason was because the royal family did not want to jeopardize its relationship with the Arab countries, and most especially saudi arabia for obvious reasons having to do with its oil. This is hardly surprising considering the British establishment's contempt for Israel. Prince Charles himself has praised islam and said the west can learn from it.

Iran's Barbaric Regime

A member of the Iranian Parliament says gays should be hanged. He generously allows however, that this would only apply to those who engage in homosexual behavior in public, not in private. How wonderfully enlightened he is. I suppose if execution of gays were to be extended to private behavior, I would suspect that he himself as well as many of Iran's crazed mullahs would be hung. Anyway what could one expect from a barbaric, medieval regime such as those who rule Iran. The sooner this regime is removed from power the better for the entire world.

Homosexuals should be executed, Iranian Parliament Member Mohsen Yahyavi said during a discussion between Iranian legislators and British officials in London in May, according to the protocol of the meeting published Tuesday in the British newspaper The Times.

Yahyavi, a member of the committee on energy affairs in Iran's Parliament, was in Britain for a peace summit.

"According to Islamic law, homosexuality is a grave crime," Yahyavi was quoted as saying. "It's a severe crime that goes against the laws of nature. It is human nature to procreate and homosexuals do not procreate."

The Iranian legislator added, "We do not have any opposition to this type of behavior as long as it is done behind closed doors, but those who (engage in) this behavior in public should be put to death."

The protocol shows that Yahyavi originally indicated that homosexuals should be "tortured," but he quickly corrected himself and said they should be "put to death."

Al Dura Video Tampered With

The dishonorable, lower than dirt Charles Enderlin and the rest of the France 2 crew are desperate to make sure the complete Al Dura video is never seen in court or by the public. And so the video was tampered with, leaving out 18 minutes of the raw footage and thus concealing the truth of Enderlin and France 2's perfidy. So what we are essentially left with is merely inconclusive evidence, no solid proof that the Al Dura incident was a hoax or at least that Israel was not responsible for his death if he is indeed dead. Richard Landes describes what was in the missing footage as he remembers it. Also read Nidra Poller's and Melanie Phillips coverage of the events of last week's courtroom drama. This is why I have such contempt for the media. They really have no interest in the truth, in the raw facts of a story. The only thing they are interested in is providing the public with the most sensationalist coverage for the sake of ratings and when it comes to the Middle East, to promote their own heavily biased narrative of the conflict.

Israel Getting Set to Strike Iran?

Israel is seeking permission from the U.S. to fly over Iraqi airspace in order to carry out an air strike on Iran's nuclear facilities. The Iranian mullahs are laughing in the face of the west's feckless diplomacy and economic sanctions. There is no time to wait for meaningful economic sanctions to take effect, assuming such a strategy would even force Iran to abandon its nuclear program, which is highly unlikely. But it is far too late to find out. Israel cannot afford to wait.

Israel is negotiating with the United States for permission to fly over Iraq as part of a plan to attack Iran's nuclear facilities, The Daily Telegraph can reveal.

To conduct surgical air strikes against Iran's nuclear programme, Israeli war planes would need to fly across Iraq. But to do so the Israeli military authorities in Tel Aviv need permission from the Pentagon.

A senior Israeli defence official said negotiations were now underway between the two countries for the US-led coalition in Iraq to provide an "air corridor" in the event of the Israeli government deciding on unilateral military action to prevent Teheran developing nuclear weapons.

"We are planning for every eventuality, and sorting out issues such as these are crucially important," said the official, who asked not to be named.

"The only way to do this is to fly through US-controlled air space. If we don't sort these issues out now we could have a situation where American and Israeli war planes start shooting at each other."

Jews Expelled From Arab Lands Own Property Deeds

We so often hear about the Palestinian refugees and their demand for the so-called "right of return" based on the false premise that they were forcibly driven out by Israel during the War of Independence. On the other hand, hundreds of thousands of Jews who were actually forcibly expelled from Arab countries hold property deeds in Arab countries consisting of 100,000 sq.km. in area, five times the state of Israel, worth more than $300 billion. Yet we rarely hear about these Jewish refugees, let alone the assets which were stolen from them by Arab regimes. There is no worldwide clamour to bring about justice for them. And worst of all, the fools who run the Israeli government fail to even bring up this issue. Is it any wonder why the Palestinians are winning the media war hands down? The issue of Jewish refugees from Arab countries ought to be shouted from the rooftops every time the Palestinians and their supporters bring up the so-called "right of return". I'm tired of the world considering Jews in Israel "settlers" and "colonial occupiers" when in fact Jews are among the indigenous people of the Middle East.

The government needs to bring up the issue of hundreds of thousands of Jews who left their homes in Arab countries following the establishment of the State of Israel as part of any future peace agreement with the Palestinians, the president of the World Organization of Jews from Arab Countries said Thursday.

About 850,000 Jews fled Arab countries after Israel's founding in 1948, leaving behind assets valued today at more than $300 billion, said Heskel M. Haddad.

He added that the New York-based organization has decades-old property deeds of Jews from Arab countries on a total area of 100,000 sq.km. - which is five times the size of the State of Israel.

Most of the properties are located in Iraq, Egypt and Morocco, Haddad said.

The Baghdad-born Haddad fled Iraq in 1951, and, after a brief stop in Israel, made his way to the United States where he went on to become a prominent New York ophthalmologist.

In an interview, he said that it was imperative for Israel to bring up the issue of the Jews who fled Arab countries at any future peace talks - including those scheduled to take place in Annapolis in the coming weeks - since no Palestinian leader would sign a peace treaty without resolving the issue of Palestinian refugees.

Hundreds of thousands of Palestinians - with estimates ranging from 400,000 to 750,000 - left Israeli-controlled territory in 1948 and 1949, and they, along with their millions of descendants, make up one of the prickliest issues to be dealt with by Israeli and Palestinian negotiators as part of any resolution to the conflict.

Haddad said that the key to resolving the issue rested with the Arab League, which in the 1950s passed a resolution stating that no Arab government would grant citizenship to Palestinian refugees, keeping them in limbo for over half a century.

At the same time, the Arab League urged Arab governments to facilitate the exit of Jews from Arab countries, a resolution which was carried out with a series of punitive measures and discriminatory decrees making it untenable for the Jews to stay in the countries.

"No Jews from Arab countries would give up their property and home and come to Israel out of Zionism," Haddad said.

He said that the Israeli government was "myopic" not to utilize this little-known information, which he said should be part of a package financial solution to solving the issue of Palestinian refugees.

An Israeli ministerial committee on claims for Jewish property in Arab countries, which is currently headed by the Pensioners Minister Rafi Eitan, has been virtually dormant since it was established four years ago.

Keeping Jerusalem United

Given the likelihood of Olmert's willingness to surrender half of Jerusalem and the Temple Mount to the terrorists at Annapolis, the Knesset plenum has wisely passed a preliminary vote in favor of a bill which would require a total of 80 MK's to divide Jerusalem. However this doesn't apply to Judea and Samaria unfortunately.

The Knesset plenum passed in a preliminary vote Wednesday a bill that would make it far more difficult to divide Jerusalem in the context of a peace agreement with the Palestinians.

54 MKs voted in favor of the bill, with 24 against. The Knesset holds preliminary votes on private bills, presented by individual MKs. Before being enacted into law, however, the bill must still be approved in committee and then pass three more plenum votes.

The bill, which was authored by Likud faction whip Gideon Sa'ar and 25 other rightist and religious MKs, would require the support of 80 MKs for any changes to the Basic Law: Jerusalem. Advertisement



An absolute majority of 61 MKs is currently needed to change the basic law, and raising the bar to 80 MKs would make it nearly impossible to gain Knesset approval for concessions on Jerusalem.

The timing of the bill is also significant, and is designed to warn the government that it cannot make concessions on the capital a few weeks before the U.S.-sponsored Middle East peace conference in Annapolis, Maryland.

The coalition apparently does not intend to try to scuttle the bill at this time, due to the fact that it has strong support in the right wing.

The government's liaison to the Knesset, MK Ruhama Avraham, also appears to be against trying to prevent the bill from passing, despite the fact that it was not discussed in the Ministerial Committee on Legislation. Avraham's position is a result of the fact that she opposes discussing Jerusalem at such an early stage in the negotiations.

AIPAC Backs Aid to PA

AIPAC is being condemned by one of its major donors for supporting a congressional letter requesting an increase in aid to the PA. The trouble with AIPAC is that it is basically a lobbying group for the Israeli Government rather than for the cause of Zionism. Their purpose is to lobby for the policies of the current government regardless of whether its harmful to Israel or not. As far as I’m concerned, dedicated Zionists would be better off supporting the Zionist Organization of America and taking their money out of AIPAC. It’s ironic that the paranoid haters of Israel the world over cite AIPAC as public enemy number one in the pro-Israel lobby, yet here they are backing aid to the PA, money which will be used for terrorism against Israel.

JTA

Sheldon Adelson sharply criticized AIPAC for supporting a U.S. congressional letter requesting increased aid to the Palestinian Authority.

Adelson, a Las Vegas-based casino magnate who is a major donor to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee and Jewish causes, likened the support to helping a friend commit suicide.

“If someone is going to jump off a bridge, it is incumbent upon their friends to dissuade them,” Adelson told JTA, referring to AIPAC’s support of the Israeli goverment’s peace moves.

One hundred members of the U.S. House of Representatives have signed on to the letter, which calls on the Bush administration to increase financial assistance to the Palestinians as a means of supporting moderates during Israel-Palestinian peace talks. The letter was slated to be sent this week to U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.

Adelson told JTA that he called Howard Kohr, AIPAC’s executive director, and was told that the pro-Israel lobby had yet to take a position on the letter. JTA confirmed AIPAC’s support, however, with officials at AIPAC and in Congress. AIPAC officials declined to comment on the exchange between Kohr and Adelson.

Adelson, also a major donor to the Republican Party, would not comment on whether he would continue to support AIPAC in light of his disagreement with the group over the letter.

Eleven Jewish Democrats have signed the letter, which was initiated by Reps. Gary Ackerman (D-N.Y.) and Charles Boustany (R-La.).

U.S. Helping Syria Economically

Remember when the Democrats openly engaged Syrian dictator basher assad, led by Nancy Pelosi wearing that ridiculous hijab over her head like an obedient dhimmi? And remember how the Bush administration roundly condemned them and rightly so? Well despite its tough rhetoric regarding Syria, the Bush administration has been secretly doing its own engaging. According to a FOX news investigation, the U.S. has been licensing hi-tech exports to Syria under a UN development program. Under the program the assad terror regime is being supplied with sophisticated surveillance equipment and computers to monitor its borders.

After years of harsh talk and escalating rounds of sanctions against Syria for supporting terror and seeking weapons of mass destruction, the United States is quietly supporting a United Nations program to supply the Syrian regime with sophisticated surveillance equipment and computers to monitor its borders.

That surreptitious support emerged in the course of a FOX News investigation that began after a surprise Israeli air strike on September 6 destroyed a mysterious Syrian facility that many experts believe was a North Korean-style nuclear reactor.

The gap between the Bush Administration’s anti-Syrian rhetoric and reality emerges in the book-keeping of the $5.2 billion United Nations Development Program, the U.N.’s flagship development agency, which has come under heavy fire for its improper funneling of cash to the regime of North Korean dictator and nuclear proliferator Kim Jong Il.

This time the issue is UNDP’s ties — and those of the U.S. and the European Union — to the Baathist regime of Syrian President Bashir Assad, which has been sanctioned by the U.S. for its sponsorship of international terrorism, destabilization of Lebanon and its shipping of terrorists and weapons to kill U.S. soldiers in Iraq.

Syria’s own ties to North Korea and its clandestine attempts to gain weapons of mass destruction were dramatically underlined on Sept. 6, when Israeli Air Force F-15s blasted the secret nuclear facility.


According to Bush Administration statements, Syria is a pariah state. It has been under escalating forms of U.S. economic, financial and trade sanctions since 2003, culminating in a broad ban on the export of U.S. goods to the Assad regime in May 2004, as a result of its alleged terrorist activities. Export controls on goods intended for Syria are in the same category as those on exports to Iran, North Korea and Sudan, likewise designated for their support for international terrorism.

They are backed up by other presidential executive orders that slapped U.S. financial sanctions on a variety of Syrian government officials, banks, and companies for being involved in the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, association with al Qaeda, and destabilizing activities in Iraq and Lebanon. The most recent order was signed in August.

All of which makes especially mysterious UNDP’s purchase and supply to Syria of more than $2.1 million worth of computers, servers, local and wide area networking equipment, networked surveillance cameras and other high-tech goods, under the bland heading of “Modernization of Syrian Customs Directorate.”

Included among the goods are network routers and other equipment manufactured by Cisco, a longtime UNDP partner, which are U.S. manufactured equipment that would be covered under any export ban.
